Parenting Book Library

From experience I know it can be hard to choose a book from an online shop and not all book shops have every pregnancy, birth and parenting book available for a browse before purchase. I have spent a lot of time building p a collection of useful books and have had some very generous donations.

The books will be available to browse during all the sling library sessions so please feel free to come along and have a look.

Books are available to borrow on a monthly basis either £3 per month or become a member for £10 per year and be able to borrow 2 books a month.
